On Sunday, December 7, Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won Super Bowl 55 against the Kanas City Chiefs, 31-9. This was Brady’s seventh Super Bowl ring, putting him ahead of any NFL franchise in total Super Bowl championships. If it was not already obvious, this game cemented Brady as the goat (a.k.a. the greatest of all time) in the NFL.
Brady spent most of his career with the New England Patriots, winning six rings alongside legendary coach Bill Belichick. However, the relationship between Brady and the organization turned sour and he parted ways with the team in free agency. He took his talents to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Coincidentally, the Super Bowl was going to be held in Tampa, and Brady wanted to be on the first team to play in the Super Bowl with home-field advantage. After a disappointing first-round playoff loss last season, Brady was motivated to prove his prowess. He led the Buccaneers to the playoffs, beating Washington, New Orleans, and Green Bay on his road to the championship.
Whether you hate him or love him, there is no doubt that this man is one of the greatest NFL players we will ever see.
